Crunchy?

It barely hurts, it's easy to heal, get a labret stud not a ring, and don't piss it off.
Easy peasy.

Honestly, I barely felt it and it hasn't made my face go "crunchy".
I don't understand :(

Mine healed in about two weeks, and I got in done in a very dodgy shop, it never hurt enough to make me need painkillers either, and I was fairly lax about the aftercare.

I bit down on it once or twice which was rather painful but apart from that, was fine.

Go and see the fitty (Adam) at Urban Piercing in Reading. He's done all of my peircings. He makes sure that all your questions are answered if you have any and really puts you at ease, plus he is fit!
My stud was fine, didn't hurt at all. My nose hurt more and that was crunchy. I've got a ring in now and it ulsered(sp) my mouth a fair bit but that's because it's too small and the next size up would have been too big. I can't get the ball off either which sucks, I think I may need pliers :(


P.S: Eating was a bit difficult at first, in my experience anyway, the back of the stud kept getting caught on my teeth, although after a few times of eating I got used to it. Just something to be cautious of though :thumb:

Crunchy = infected, my ears went very crunchy you see... I has second piercings in both my ears and then a top one and they ALL went crunchy, if it goes crunchy in my face i might end up horribly scarred.

I want it done.

Fitty sounds good Jess, thanksee for the tip-off...

Don't ruin your face Katy, if you're going to get it done get it done in the middle, or if you absolutely must get it done on the side, do it on both sides.

p.s. if you've had that many piercings go crunchy on you it may not be the best idea. on the other hand piercings in my ears always go crunchy but anywhere else I seem to be fine with.

Quick question, mainly aimed at Rach(Alka) I think. I'm guessing you went on a plane to Amsterdam, did any of your piercings set off the security alarm thing at the Airports?
I know they're only triggered by some metals and I don't know if the metal used for peircings set them off, I don't want to set it off and then have to get my boobs out to show them that I've got metal in me rather than a bomb. :oogle:

I haven't flown abroad since New York in 05 (Amsterdam's in July) when I had all sorts of metally joy, and it was my flip flops (made of wicker :S) that set off the machines, not my face, ears or collarbone surface business. Pfft. I didn't have my nips back then, but on internal flights that I've taken recently I haven't set the alarms off, except on the way back when I was hungover and in heels and I had to take them off cos of the buckles.

Dink- did you get your ear piercings done with a gun? They're significantly more likely to get infected if so, also because a lot of the time they're in contact with hair it's a biatch.
Your lip will be a piece of piss in all honesty. Unless you're a complete wuss. And if you gunned the top of your ear you really can't be.

I went through about 20 security alarms back when I had my nipple pierced and I didn't set it off once. I kept secretly wanting it to though, for one of those Spinal Tap moments.

1. I do have a spectacular face.

2. i'm not sure a middle one would suit me, *edited to make sense* If i'm unsure about ONE piercing, maybe TWO is not the sanest plan...

3. Crunchy ears are not fun.

i'm not sure if that's entirely* relevant.

i like sidey lip, but only on people it works on, and that's not very many people. otherwise, you just look like a caught fish.

i thought it was relevant. what i mean is, someone who likes the idea of having a metal mohawk, or horn implants, or a split tongue, has dubious taste and should thus be ignored when it comes to matters of taste. imo.

I reckon piercings on the side of the lips look nice. I know loads of girls who have had it done, do it.
Mind you they are all fitties, and i reckon they only look attractive on very good looking women.
So if you are a fitty get it done i suppose!
